Midland Silver Service Honor Cord

The goal of the Silver Service Cord is to recognize students who have contributed to their community or school by volunteering their time and talents. An increasing number of scholarship applications require applicants to list service and experiences. Volunteer time often leads to employment and future educational opportunities as well as enabling students to understand the connection between school, work, and community.

Interested MHS students must complete 300 hours of service during four years of high school starting with the summer after eighth grade, to receive the Silver Service Honor Cord. Hours must be completed independently from other obligations such as Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, Campfire, and family. Volunteers may not receive payment or course credit for service hours. Volunteers will document all work and will get the signature of the individual or official representative on the documentation. Documentation sheets may be obtained in Mr. Luensman's room or the main office. Hours may also be recorded on plain paper. Completed hours can be submitted at any time, but must be submitted by the end of the first semester for that calendar year.

Service may include but is not limited to: Community performances outside MHS, Volunteering at OJ school or daycares outside your home, Peer tutoring, Teacher's aide, Volunteer at Senior Meals site, Senior Home, County Home, the food Bank, or food or clothing giveaways, Yard work for area elderly, Coaching or refereeing elementary teams, Working at High School activities (set up for sporting events, musical concerts )
